Fried Catfish Fight: Lo-Lo's Chicken and Waffles vs. Jamburritos Cajun Grille Express

Hayden Harrison
The Jamburritos Cajun Grille Express catfish plate.
As an Arkansas native, there are many things I miss from the South. One of them is the ability to float around on the White River that ran through town while my best friend's dad caught what would be fried for dinner -- catfish.

Now that I live in a desert and I don't fish much, I set out to find that flaky and perfectly battered catfish to satisfy my cravings.

In This Corner: Jamburritos Cajun Grille Express

The Setup: Jamburritos is a food truck. And as the name implies, these folks like to serve up the Cajun cuisine a little different by wrapping a burrito around their etouffee. To find where they are stationed for the day, check out their monthly calendar or Twitter feed.

The Good: For only $8, this catfish came paired with jambalaya rice with andouille sausage and a small salad. With a hint of spice and lemon, the catfish had a Cajun twist on the usual bland take on catfish. The meal also came with some salsa, which was a great dip.

The Bad: Although the fish was flaky, it was too crispy for my liking.
